Standing Together for Safer Roads By Annabel Burn  ​​​​​ Standing Together for Safer Roads for our Horses & Riders - Epsom Downs Racecourse.  In a recent heartfelt post by dedicated racehorse rider & head groom Louisa Allen, we were given a sobering reminder of the challenges faced by horses and their riders on the road every day. This is a greater risk for flighty racehorses but the plea for drivers to respect horses on the roads is a call that should resonate with all of us, whether we're horse enthusiasts, racing enthusiasts or not. It's a plea for understanding, empathy ..read more

Hosting the games this year was the beautiful Twyford fa ..read more

100 Moments from All The Queen's Horses at London's New Year's Day Parade   Just over 10 years ago in autumn 2011, I received a phone call from Caroline Marsh (whom I was yet to meet).  We spoke for well over an hour about her vision; All The Queen's Horses at the London New Years Day Parade.  Did I think she was slightly crazy?  Indeed I did but she inspired me and I was 100% on board as a photographer on the team!  Fast forward to New Years Day 2012 and we were in London with a huge team of horses about to parade through flag waving, bustling crowds alongside marchin ..read more
